Heads Up georgia campaign with georgia public broadcasting

Distracted driving is a problem for drivers of all ages but especially teen and young adult drivers. The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is proud to partner with Ford Driving Skills for Life and Georgia Public Broadcasting to show teen drivers just how dangerous it is when they are not paying attention to the road. Students from the two schools playing in GPB’s high school football game of the week will take part in FDSL’s distracted driving course. The students riding with an instructor have to make their way through the specifically designed course during which they have to attempt to send a text message. GPB’s cameras recorded all the action outside and inside the cars and you can watch the results at 7:00 p.m. every Friday night. We can’t give away the ending but all of the students and one parent who took part all said it was an eye-opening experience.
